    However, it is dangerous to seem too power hungry or to be overt with your power moves.  You must seem fair and decent.  So you  need to be subtle — congenial yet cunning!  Democratic yet devious.

    It isn't a deal but more of a wish. But the idea of selling arms to country of 9/11bombers just leaves me baffled.

    so disgusting to see this jewish backed idiot and his neglected wife dancing with sward against ALL his campaign promises. what an international disgrace to see him dishonor the great nation of Iran and the true American People in childish glee…..among an ignorant tribe of pathetic thieves. and in the end, israel will wash their hands of this pivotal idiot in celebration of their newly achieved middle east dominance and lebensraum.

    Trump went to Saudi to get his billions $$$$$ and millions for Ivanka. Couldn't care less about anything else. We are all suckers and complicit MURDERERS.

    why is it so hard to find non jews in the media and all the places of power?! I mean jews are only 1,7% of the population in the USA, how is this possible? There is an absolutely horrible imbalance in favor of jews. This shouldn't be allowed, especially in times when everybody is fighting for equality.

    This jew domination is happening all over the world where jews are even less percentage of the population ( well under 1%).

    Watching all the obviously religiously brainwashed,…(Hey, after all, it's "Mandatoraly Born Ignorant, Prison Planet Earth!"?)…composed of "Trumpster-males-only" dancing with the all-male dress wearing totally moronic Saudi "donut-heads", brings to MY mind the old: "Stupid IS as stupid DOES!" Yeah…SHEESH!!!…but not really surprised. 😉

    Just look at the orange buffoon and his deplorables dancing with swords; what hypocrites they are on Saudi Arabia.

    Democracy Now: I am really hoping that you'll talk about the recently announced $20 billion Saudi Arabian investment in the private investment company Blackstone. This NYT article entirely ignores the significance of this investment with respect to the privatization of infrastructure in the US: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/20/business/dealbook/saudi-arabia-to-invest-20-billion-in-infrastructure-mostly-in-us.html?_r=0

    This code pink bitch needs to get off her high horse. The US government nuked Nagasaki and Hiroshima, destroyed Vietnam, Iraq, countless coups on and on. What moral ground does she think she stands on to be telling any country (other than America) how THEY should act or raise their children?

    Obama didn't sell Saudi Arabia weapons. He would never to do anything like that. Only a big bad racist white man would do something like that.

    The skeletal look of a woman that lives as a gatekeeper of the left. Obama started the bombing right. Oh so ugly woman. Code Pink was asleep for 8 years.

    Peace sells…Who's buying? They <<<ALL>>> seem to bow to the Saudi's…every administration!! So much for taking on the establishment, Trump is going to be a well trained neo con in no time. Trading innocent human life for money and oil. Clinton or Sanders would be doing the exact same thing had they won the Presidency. The power structure of the elite will never be broken, it has vast resources that reach too far. Trump may drain some of the swamp within the USA but as far as taking on the Global swamp, he might as well try to blow up Mt Everest with a fire cracker.
